"A rebuilt graphics engine means that LittleBigPlanet 2 looks even better than its forebear - sharper, cleaner, and with a greater sense of physicality," states the latest issue of EDGE magazine, on store shelves now
"A share of tech with the God of War III team means it's borrowed its depth-of-field effects. Objects are better defined with surrounding shadow, a result of ambient occlusion..
We've gotta admit, we spotted this but thought nothing more of it, so credit to PS3Hype who have put two and two together
About midway through the new LittleBigPlanet 2 trailer, there's a pretty lengthy shot of an object wearing old school blue and red 3D glasses. Does it mean that the third dimension is planned as an out-of-the-box extra for LittleBigPlanet 2? Betcha it does.</em>

Media Molecule's Mark Healey has told Vg247 that it will be possible to potentially "string together a thousand levels" in LittleBigPlanet 2
The functionality to tie levels together will allow creator's to develop entire games, rather than singular experiences. There is loads of stuff, just because there are so many things added, he said. I can tell you about Level Links, as that is a great..
Many have been pondering this weekend exactly why LittleBigPlanet is getting a disc-based sequel as opposed to a downloadable update
Thankfully, Media Molecule's co-founder Alex Evans was on-hand to explain the reasoning to 1Up. "There are kind of two reasons," Evans told the website. "It's all predicated on to make [the game] backwards compatible, which is huge and epic..
Eurogamer's just dropped a massive preview for this year's upcoming LittleBigPlanet 2
It pretty much tells you everything you need to know about the upcoming sequel, and details many of the game's new features; including the ability to "fix" Sackboy's floaty jump and the little man's Bionic Commando-inspired grapple hook. The preview concludes: "You should expect a sequel that comes..
LittleBigPlanet 2's just been announced by Sony and Media Molecule folks

We'll be updating the site all day in what we're now going to dub "LittleBigPlanet 2 day". Enjoy. We've attached the press release after the jump..
LITTLEBIGPLANET 2 IS OFFICIAL
This sickly sweet trailer just released by Media Molecule confirms just as much, showcasing the fact that you'll now be able to create entire games in completely unique genres. Yes - the trailer does reveal Micro Machines-esque racing and Bust-A-Move style puzzling. But most importantly, it reminds us of LittleBigPlanet's uncompromising personality. The Sack's back in..

He was speaking about the new game's editor, and its ability to allow the creation of multiple genres, unlike the first game's platformer specific content. "This was originally going to be the one feature in...
LittleBigPlanet 2's a video game
Media Molecule has insisted on telling us that much. Everything else we know by now, we probably shouldn't. The embargo lifts tomorrow. Already people are forming opinions about the game though: generally I'm gauging a sense of unprecedented excitement, optimism at the potential fixes for common problems, and...
LittleBigPlanet 2 hasn't really been unveiled yet
That happens tomorrow at 2PM, when Media Molecule lift an embargo of huge proportions, unveiling their latest creation. A News Of The World preview - which has presumably been posted a little early - has a few screens from the game and notes that all original LBP levels will be ported into the new game. We'll be able to confirm everything you wan

Details Grab Us By The Throat, Slap Us Around The Face And Scream "AMAZZZING!!1" Down Our Lug-Holes
Sometimes you read something that's so exciting your stomach wrenches until you feel sick. Sick in a good way, mind. It might be a set of exam results that are good enough to get you into university. It might be a letter from the gas company telling you they over-charged your last bill. In our case,..
Presumably if you had any doubts about LittleBigPlanet 2 being a genuine product, you should tear them up and throw them out with last night's unfinished curry: GameInformer magazine are promising a "huge feature article" on LittleBigPlanet 2 in their June issue
Oh - that's a game then. Rumours have been bubbling about a LittleBigPlanet sequel for some time, but they finally gained momentum..
Everytime I jump back into LittleBigPlanet I have a mild brain explosion
Having worked tirelessly for several days to create my own LBP representation of Alice In Wonderland back in '08, I know the amount of work that needs to be instilled into these projects in order to create a masterpiece. But everytime I go back to LBP, there's something that...
Ever since Sony acquired talented British studio Media Molecule everyone's been questioning what they're going to do next
There's no way Sony would extend their already bulging European first-party suite for LittleBigPlanet costume packs, and naturally that's resulted in the title LittleBigPlanet 2 popping up a fair bit. Looks like the game's just been semi-confirmed. Y'see, electronic musician..
The Incredibles are coming to LittleBigPlanet on April 8th and, guess what, they're looking incredibly cute
This super-hero themed pack not only includes nine costumes, but also a Gallery Level featuring tons of new level building goodies.
Heh, it did seem like a bit of a slip of the tongue and an issue of translation that caused Sony's Benelux marketing manager to "confirm" LittleBigPlanet 2 earlier this week
And, yup, as soon as the rumour started, it's been debunked. ConnectedConsoles prompted Sony for comment on the situation, getting the following response: As demonstrated recently at GDC, LittleBigPlanet has been shown as an..
According to a report on Dutch website Tweakers (via VG247), LittleBigPlanet 2 is a genuine product that will support Sony's upcoming Playstation Move motion controller

We knew there was more to Sony's Media Molecule purchase than was originally being let on
And VG247 might just have slipped the first hint of a rumour on the matter. They claim that Sony are set to release a product called "LBP2" this year — have a wild stab at what that game might be, folks. Media Molecule categorically stated they wouldn't do a sequel to LittleBigPlanet last year, so..

Eurogamer got to go eyes-on with a host of Playstation products at Evolution Studios' (MotorStorm) office this week
Of the things at the event were a host of Playstation 3 titles running in 3D. One such game running in 3D was LittleBigPlanet. And according to Eurogamer's Richard Leadbetter, the 3D imaging actually improves the game, given the levels of hate that were aimed at LBP's three-paned..

Media Molecule will be pretty chuffed today
They walked home with the childrens video game Bafta last night as LittleBigPlanet proved the successor in a tight category featuring Viva Pinata, deBlob and Boom Blox. Time to install that new cabinet, eh Media Molecule?

Hurrah. Amazingly, this costume pack looks rather awesome, with Dr. Robotnick (Eggman) proving to be the pick of the bunch as far as we're concerned. No word on a price or date yet, just know,...
User generated levels in Media Molecule's LittleBigPlanet have now hit 1
3million. That's a whopping amount of content to get through - and even if 99% of it is rubbish, still leaves 1,300 good levels to check out. Speaking at the Montreal Game Summit, lead architect Paul Holden said, The figures are obviously changing daily. The last figures I...
During the development of LittleBigPlanet, Media Molecule developed a tool entitled HeapMon, which allowed software to manage numerous requests of the PS3's hardware memory
Media Molecule now want to make that tool available to other developers, so long as Sony agree. Speaking at the Montreal Game Summit, Media Molecule lead architect Paul Holden said it "would be great if we could release it..
We know what you're thinking
You're thinking, "Do-do-do-doo-doo." That's ok though, we are too. SCEE have confirmed to CVG this morning that the PSP version of LittleBigPlanet will hit UK PSPs this November 20th. Yo, that's not far away folks.
It's been a year since Media Moleucle launched the massively innovative LittleBigPlanet onto the Playstation 3, and while we ready ourselves for a PSP spin-off, Media Molecule have talked about the possibility of a Playstation 3 sequel
Or lack thereof. "We'd never want to do that," level designer told Danny Leaver told Critical Gamer. "That'd be the most counterproductive thing you..

We've been very jealous today
While reading our surprisingly buoyant journo colleagues Tweets from sunny ol' London, we've been sat here in the gloomy Midlands typing stuff. Still, DJ Hero did come in the post. Score. Over in London though, a real party has kicked off as Fallout 3 won the annual Golden Joysticks "Ultimate Game Of The Year". Over 1.2 million votes were cast in the awards,..

It'll hit on Thursday for free. We're not sure how long it will stay there, so you better act fast to make sure you get yours.
We've been playing Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars today
But you know what's exciting — having a PSPgo with both Chinatown Wars and LittleBigPlanet on the same system. Amazing. Still... That has very little to do with this story. We just wanted to say, once again, just how awesome Chinatown Wars is. 'Cos it rocks. A recent LittleBigWorkshop post...
It feels like forever we've had something to write about regarding LittleBigPlanet DLC
We assume it's full speed ahead regarding the upcoming water DLC. Still, at least we have some new costumes to speak of. Introducing Sackboy Watchmen costumes, inspired by the classic graphical novel. There's no Dr. Manhattan we're 'fraid. But that dude walks...
When we heard the Playstation Motion Controller was going to be supported by LittleBigPlanet, we instantly thought of Super Mario Galaxy's bobble collecting solution
But in practice, LittleBigPlanet's solution is much more refined. It looks as though levels can be designed with the controllers in mind, offering an experience where one player can play as Sackboy, and the other can manipulate the..
Sackboy's looking just as charming as ever in these newly released screens from LittleBigPlanet PSP
This scene depicted in the new set over at Joystiq shows Sackboy taking to the stage and demanding applause. It's all so charming. Oh Sackboy, you make us swoon.
LittleBigPlanet is being recalled in the US again
It's not for the first time, after Sony's big new-IP was pulled back just before it's launch last year due to some stimulating religious discussion. It's happening again. Of course not quite so sinister this time. Internal discussion at American retailer GameStop has revealed that old, unsold copies of LittleBigPlanet are to be packed up and sent..
For us, the selling point of LittleBigPlanet PSP is being able to create levels on the move
For some it will probably be participating in multiplayer sessions of LBP while in the garden or something. We're afraid if your someone looking forward to the latter, LittleBigPlanet PSP will not support online multiplayer. "It's the one thing we've...
We're more likely to make levels on our Playstation Portable with LittleBigPlanet PSP if we're being totally honest
The fact that you can play the PSP anywhere, means we're likely to sit hunched over our shiny PSP Go's on the train working on wonderful concoctions on the way to work. So it's pretty much amazing that Studio Cambridge and Media Molecule have managed to squash pretty much the entirety..
Water has been confirmed as a downloadable extra for LittleBigPlanet
The potentially game changing add on hasn't been detailed in full at the time of writing, but we do have this amazing trailer for you.
Who didn't play LittleBigPlanet? Hang you heads in shame you terrible, terrible, terrible people
